Notice that he still hasn't got a club. Wonder if he'll be dancing for joy like he was leaving us at the end of the season when it gets to October and he's worrying about how he's going to pay the bills?

Will probably sign for someone now!

Someone will take a punt on him. Bet he'll end up somewhere like Borehamwood.

He'll do a good job, until he falls out with somebody.

Although he did a good job with us I always was a little puzzled by him as he never seemed to link particularly well with any strike partner on a consistent basis and appeared to prefer a lone striking role. Then when played alone often appeared reluctant to put the runs in but maybe that was he became too isolated and the quality of our forward passes left a little to be desired.

Did an ok job but wasn’t sorry when he moved on.

Any other team in the division last year he gets 20+ goals for me. Fantastic player thats had a career at a higher level, shame he fell out with Jolley as I think he would of been an asset this year.

Fantastic player?  Let's not get carried away here.  He's a lower league journeyman, albeit a quite effective one.  The fact he's only had one spell exclusively at one club that's exceeded one season (2 season at Oxford - the first of which he was injured from November onwards) speaks volumes.

He was an asset last year and there's no doubt that if you take away his efforts, our goal return looks even more abysmal.  But he's the complete embodiment of someone who has all the attributes without an attitude to match it.  

To progress remotely beyond our disappointing finish last season, we need better players as individuals but also far better team-players.   Based on the relatively limited appearances I've seen from them (and their track records) at their former clubs, I would go for both Green and Hanson over Thomas every day of the week.

Thomas will find himself a club no trouble. Managers talk, word will have gotten round that he's hard work and a disruptive influence.  But someone will be willing to take a chance on him, probably having to a pay a premium for his services the longer it goes to the start of the season, or even beyond.  Strikers, especially those with decent track records, are probably different to other players in that they can afford to sit it out beyond pre-season knowing someone will offer what they want eventually.

Don't get the knockers ....he was obviously as pi55ed off as we all were with the lack of supply and support he was getting on a match by match basis, and as a striker whose whole career depends largely on his goal ratio then no suprise he eventually kicked off.
Scored a couple of crackers in his time so no bitterness from me.

Sorry, but a man who thinks he performed okay at Oldham doesn't deserve any adulation...
He was out for his own kudos and didn't play for the team, see his backside too easy and didn't dig in when needed..
Yes, he scored goals for us but his tweet complete p!ssed and decent town fans right off .
Good riddance to a bad egg and let's see what Hanson and Green can do for us...

for all the lack of service he got, how many assists did he contribute?
